1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had my July appointment with Larry. Lots of cranial, neck, and upper back OMM.
  • Tuesday I went to U of M for my yearly Gastroparesis check up. I was given an EKG because I am on Domperidone, and everything looked good. My doc wants me to have the Hydrogen Breath Test (because of my flares) which is to check to make sure I have the good kind of bacteria in my stomach. I am also to return in six months for a check up and a meeting with their nutritionist.

Hellooooo Spring Break! I welcome you with wide open arms!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • No PT.
  • One day of Home Rehab. Not enough rehab this week.
  • One sick day taken. My blood pressure and heart rate were not cooperating, and I felt my body shutting down. I knew I had to take a day or I would be in big trouble.

What a crazy, busy week. I am laying here typing, looking like a zombie, and feeling very thankful to have my feet up right now on this sunny Saturday…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. We are trying to do more of alternating muscle groups when I come in. Since I worked my upper body so much last week, I did tons of core, glute, leg, and hip work. Holy burnnnnn.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill; still trying to increase my incline slowly, light weights, scap exercises, toe rises, lunges, proprioception work, and light stretching.
  • I saw Larry for my monthly appointment on Tuesday. My first six ribs were subluxed so he focused on my upper back to get everything to calm down and move back into place.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I had a really rough weekend of rib subluxations, stomach flu, and migraines from EDS neck pain so when I arrived to therapy, I had had it. I immediately burst into tears…It’s been a while since that happened but my amazing therapist was able to calm me (and my pain) down with a stern pep talk about pacing and listening to my body, cranial therapy, and rib OMM.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill, balance work, and floor exercises.
  • I have been trying to drink more and more water. I have been feeling so dehydrated lately which does not help my POTS issues.
